Keep Your Brakes Stopping Smoothly with Lithia Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram of Wasilla's Help
There are two very important things you want your car to do: drive and stop. The stopping part is incredibly important not just to the well-being of your car, but to your safety as well as that of other drivers and pedestrians on the road. That's why in addition to making sure your engine is running smoothly, you want to ensure your brakes flawlessly bring your Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep or Ram to a stop, every single time. Neglecting your brakes can lead to unnecessary rotor replacements and towing bills or even the worst possible outcome: them failing when you need them most.
Repairing brakes isn't easily added to your repertoire but understanding when they need a fixer-upper can be. Understanding the signs of wear and tear on your brakes is the first step in knowing when it's time to bring your car in for a look, which can help you to avoid costly repairs down the road. Here are some signs that your brakes have seen better days:
- Vibration in the steering wheel when stopping
- Grinding noises when stopping
